November's Engineering Adventure:
STUNT PLANE STATE CHALLENGE
"Your team has been chosen to design a new stunt plane for the Thunderbirds, the U.S. Air Force’s flight demonstration squadron. This new plane has to be up to some major challenges—fly through hoops, knock over towers, and even have the ability to execute a tail-hook landing!"
At the 2014 State Competition, the stunt plane challenge had students learning all kinds of new tricks. Test your students' flight skills and sneak in a lesson on the engineering design process. It's the perfect prep for Divisionals!
STEM Excitement in Port Arthur
Tavian Gipson's first shot at the electric ball was tentative — timid, even — but he said that initial "jolt" got him hooked.
"My body is a conductor," Gipson said, smiling at his classmates.
The Port Arthur News featured the TAME Trailblazer in a story about a recent 10-day visit to the Golden Triangle region of Texas.
